GRAIN--THE GORBACHEV FACTOR

This article reviews some of the salient points from a report entitled "Long-Term Outlook for Grain Imports by Developing Countries," published by the International Wheat Council in London. The report predicts that the agricultural reforms proposed by Gorbachev will have the USSR self-sufficient in grain by the year 2000. By that time, 80% of the world grain trade could be with developing countries. This prospect raises a variety of difficult political and economic problems, including that of transforming the transport infrastructure of those countries to enable their coping with new levels of import demand.
